Contravene’s simple stockinette and simple lace creates a lightweight accessory perfect for transitional seasons.
This cowl starts with a provisional cast-on, has an i-cord edge that inhibits the stockinette section from rolling, ends with grafting the stitches of the last row to the live stitches of the provisional cast-on, and is easily customizable to make the cowl larger. The pattern includes links for provisional cast-on, 3-needle bind-off, and kitchener.
